Regional Genetics Laboratory Selects CliniSys

15 June 2015

London North West Healthcare NHS Trust has appointed CliniSys to deliver their WinPath Enterprise Laboratory Information System (LIMS) for The North West Thames Regional Genetics Service located in the Kennedy-Galton Centre at Northwick Park Hospital.

The North West Thames Regional Genetics Laboratory provides a comprehensive range of genetic services to North West Thames, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and beyond.

CliniSys was selected through a process to identify the most economically advantageous provider to deliver a replacement solution for the incumbent legacy LIMS.

The CliniSys solution will provide a flexible and scalable platform to meet the immediate and emerging needs of the services delivered through the genetics laboratories.

Fiona Pearson, CliniSys Chief Executive Officer commented “In recent years we’ve seen the involvement of genetics in mainstream pathology services rapidly increase and we’ve been fortunate that our core solutions support these evolving services and technologies. We are excited to be involved in this is a landmark project as it proves that our multidisciplinary pathology solutions are also eminently transferable to support specialist genetics laboratories.”  Fiona continues “We look forward to working closely with the Laboratory to continue developing our product to remain at the forefront of genetics LIMS”.

The delivery programme was split into phases to meet a tight implementation timeline. The first of these phases to deliver basic LIMS functionality was delivered on time and to plan on the 1st April 2015. The laboratories look forwards to working with CliniSys as part of the commission of additional functionality in due course.
